My Cup Runneth Over

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Have you ever tried to put more than 8 cups of water in the glass on your tracker. It's so funny, it runs all over the place.

But that's just how I feel about all the friends I've made on SP. My friend cup is "A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over" to quote a part of Luke 6:38

When I signed up with SP, I thought I'd basically be on my own. I knew there were a lot of others around, but I thought I'd be a 'group of 1' trying to follow the 'rules' and trying not to 'fail the test' like I've done countless times before.

I am thrilled to say that I was way off base. Not only are there numerous articles and blogs to read, but I have encountered many new friends who are willing and happy to give encouragement when it is needed, or just stop by and say hello.

Now, don't get me wrong, I have a lot of friends in this other world outside of my computer, but as I've said before, the only person who knows I'm on SP is my daughter. I don't want to tell anyone that I'm trying to lose weight, because they may not understand the methods we use here...slow but sure...and they may think I'm doing something wrong if I don't lose 20 pounds in a month (which I've done before). I'd much rather the proof be in the pudding, so to speak.

So, for now, I am happy and content to share my success with my SP friends, and let the outside world sit back and wonder why I have this smile on my face!

    Your blog is beautiful and so lovely. I am proud to be your friend and will always be here if you need a shoulder to lean on. Thank you for such beautiful words.
    I feel like SP is a family, my friends on here probably know more of my inner turmoil's than anyone on the "outside".
    Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs Dee
